Description Eric Paris 2009-03-23 15:56:32 EDT
Installing F11 from March 23.

On the custom install screen I chose to create my own layout.  Now that install has started I checked out fdisk -l to see if things looked good.  The problem is that my swap partition is listed as type 83.  I expected it to be of type 82 "Linux swap / Solaris"
Comment 1 David Cantrell 2009-03-23 23:26:58 EDT
I've verified that anaconda sets the parted.PARTITION_SWAP flag on the swap partition via pyparted and pyparted is calling libparted to set the PED_PARTITION_SWAP flag.  The problem looks to be in libparted in the DOS disk label code.  It never does anything with the PED_PARTITION_FLAG.  The attached patch may solve the problem.  Haven't tested it, but put it together to describe what I think the problem is.

Reassigning to parted.

This will be available in the next parted version 1.8.8-15.

parted 1.8.8-16 is the next version, sorry.
